TimeBanking is a way of giving and receiving to build supportive networks and strong communities. The linkAges™ timebank is an online network that connects and empowers Village members to improve each other’s health by providing opportunities for meaningful connections. These connections strengthened our organization by reducing social isolation and loneliness for all participants. The linkAges network has been tailored to meet the unique needs of our Santa Cruz Village community.  If you are signed in to this website you can access linkAges using the tab on the main menu.
